Sarah o pomembnih ljudeh:
I used to think I thought the right way, like, who cares if everyone does bad things, because bad things are just what important people have to do. Who cares if Barack Obama bombs people and doesn’t even try to prosecute bankers, because that’s all just his job, and he loves gay people and yells at bigots and his wife is smart and has great arms. Who cares if Hillary Clinton is best friends with Henry Kissinger, because she is a woman and so am I, and she stands up to men, and isn’t that what feminism is all about, finally getting into the rooms, finally getting to be the one to kill the people who don’t matter?

3T ne more da ne bi občudoval profesionalizma:
Sad day in our office in Bergamo. This morning at 6.00am 6-8 thieves entered our office and robbed all bikes. The thieves drilled a hole through a 1 meter thick wall to enter our warehouse. After that they moved quickly to break the warehouse door, cut the fence surrounding our office and move more than 20 bikes into their van. The police arrived within 10 minutes, but they already had left. Everyone at 3T is in shock that this happened, and the level of professionalism of the thieves.

David Graeber o dnevnih nalogah:
Does Oxford really need to employ a dozen-plus PR specialists to convince the public it’s a top-notch university? I’d imagine it would take at least that many PR agents quite a number of years to convince the public Oxford was not a top-notch university, and even then, I suspect the task would prove impossible. Obviously, I am being slightly facetious here: this is not the only thing a PR department does. I’m sure in the case of Oxford much of its day-to-day concerns involve more practical matters such as attracting to the university the children of oil magnates or corrupt politicians from foreign lands who might otherwise have gone to Cambridge.

David Roberts o peer review verziji:
The authors conclude that “in all individual cases and across the aggregated evidence, the case for feasibility [of 100 percent renewable energy] is inadequate for the formation of responsible policy directed at responding to climate change.”
That is the peer-reviewed version of a sick burn.

Mark Alker o hashtagih:
So according to Specialized the word ‘Wu’ is a noun that is used to describe the tilt of your seatpost. For example..
I say old chap, the nose of your saddle is tipped back at some considerable angle beyond the natural horizontal.
..is more commonly translated on the trail as..
Yo bro, you are rockin some serious wu on that saddle, dude. Yeah!#doyouevenwubro

Vinko in Jazst o pogruntacijah:
vinko:
Pozdravljeni!
Po načrtih iz neta sem naredil napravico,ki ti s pomočjo indukcijske plošče naredi več elektrike kot jo porabi. Za 200 watov porabljene elektrike ven dobiš cca 500 watov.In tako je tudi pri višji porabi ,za 1000 watov dobiš ven cca 3000 watov elektrike,…
Zadevo sem že stestiral in deluje,,…
Hvala in lep dan vsem želim! Lp

Jazst:
@ Vinko To tvojo stvar sem videl in sprobal tudi sam in deluje fantasično. Meni je bolj všeč moja druga pogruntacija drugače, in sicer – avto sem obrnil na glavo in z elektro motorjem poganjam gumo. Ker ima bencinski motor izkoristek 1:3 ko izgoreva bencin dobim ven 3x več bencina kot dam notri elektrike. Nikoli več mi ni treba tankati.

nsmb, kako stvari stoje v svetu testov:
preberi vse, tole je samo za prigrizek:
Negativity?
No one likes a whiner, especially the mountain bike industry. So what happens when you find something less than exemplary about a product you are testing? There’s a few options:
1. Compliment sandwich
So you found something that grinds your gears about the bike but you don’t want to be the squeaky link (squeaky links don’t get the oil, they get ignored, put in the corner, or chopped). Remember that although you tell your mother that you’re a real, big boy journalist, deep down you know you’re just here to lube the industry, so wrap the less-than-glowing parts of your review between or around some really effusive positives. Example: if you don’t like the handling/ suspension/ the build quality/ parts spec, then just quickly gloss over that fact with a cursory mention, then cover your tracks with an Although, But, or However. “I thought the tire choice was less than ideal for the trails we used on our test track BUT the attention to detail of BRAND-X to spec a silver-coloured bottle cage on production models was an inspired decision that shows they really get it.”

Jonas o Leninu:
Kdaj nam bo dovolj? Zakaj ne gremo takoj protestirat na ulice! Aja, sej smo že šli, na Wall Street in tja pred borzo na Bavarcu, a nismo? Oziroma, so šli. Tretja oseba. Zame je bilo premrzlo, pa brez zamere. Sebe si tako ali tako predstavljam bolj kot guruja, kot pa aktivista. Oficirja revolucije, ne pešaka. “Možgani morajo bit na toplem”, je rekel že Lenin, citat je iz wikipedije. Vem, ker sem ga sam dodal.

Jonas o teflonu:
Ko so šli Američani na luno, so nam mulcem v šoli potem še dolga leta učitelji razlagali, da je bilo drago, ampak ne zaman. Da so se znanstveniki zraven toliko novega naučili, da je ves svet profitiral od novih izumov in pogruntavščin, ki jih zdaj vsi uporabljamo. Recimo teflon, da se ne prime. Ob vrnitvi ob atmosfero bi se astronavti scvrli, če ne bi znanstveniki na hitro v nekaj mesecih izumili posebnega zunanjega premaza, odpornega na megavročino. Do takrat še ni obstajal, ker se ga ni potrebovalo in so ga na hitro izumili. Zdaj pa lahko na njem tudi navadni smrtniki jajčka cvremo, ne da bi se zapekla. Res vesoljska tehnologija, tale teflon.
Bogme, zmeraj je bil teflon. Drugega primera za iznajdbo iz vesolja še v življenju nisem slišal, tako, da bi običajen človek kaj od nje imel. Nadaljuj z branjem “Zakaj berem bloge 9”
